The sun is killing everything in its path. The crew and passengers now embark on a mission to escape daylight by continuing to fly away from direct sunlight.
Inspired by a Polish Science Fiction book “The old Axolotl” by Dukaj
In the book, the writer tells the story of a post-apocalyptic world in which a cosmic catastrophe has sterilized the Earth of all living things.

About this show:
Into the Night tells the story about retaining humanity in the face of a cosmic disaster, as a flight departs from Brussels in the early hours. It is inspired by the science fiction book "The Old Axolotl" by Jacek Dukaj. Into the night is the story of a group of people onboarding a plane from Belgium. Televisions inside the airport begin to show people collapsing right in the middle of their broadcasts. The plane is hijacked by a frantic Italian NATO Soldier called Terenzio. Terenzio gets onboard and forces the flight for an early take-off. The few people that are still on the aircraft become survivors to the deadliest global catastrophe that results in people dying due to exposure to sunlight. In an attempt to escape the catastrophe, the plane continues to head west to avoid the sunlight. The passengers left in the plane must work together to continue to avoid direct rays of the sunshine, and manage challenges such as fuel shortage, irradiated food and other problems, in a quest to reach an underground military bunker to save their lives.
